Creating quick and easy, yet beautiful cards is always the goal.  But, the Butterfly Gala bundle just made that so much better.  The butterfly images are positioned on the stamps so that the coordinating Butterfly Duet punch will punch out both a small and large butterfly in one punching motion.

Another great Sale-a-Bration Level 1 selection is the Part of My Story stamp set.  I love the sentiments and fonts and they are great for all sort of cards.

That gorgeous paper dictated the color palette; Whisper White, Highland Heather, and Basic Black. And coloring was made very easy with just two of our Stampin’ Blends, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green.  I used the light tone, but you could always mix and match with the dark tones as well.

I’m always happy to figure out new ways of using our ribbons.  This time I married some black satin and whisper white polka dot tulle to achieve the perfect trim for my card. Those gorgeous wooden elements, can you believe it? It’s a FREE Sale-a-Bration item as well.

Because to me a card just isn’t finished, until you’ve stamped inside, I used another image from the Part of My Story set to complete my message.
